We were traveling through Ohio after a weekend in Michigan and wanted to find a quiet place on the water for the night. After a long day of traveling and reading reviews, we almost gave up and booked a night at a Holiday Inn Express on our route but my sister had her heart set on a more unique experience so she called Walk in the Water Cottages. Chris offered us a generous discount on the room (perhaps because it was a Sunday night?) and that clinched it for us. We ended up having one of the most relaxing nights of our vacation. We let Chris know we were on our way and as soon as we arrived, he appeared from one of the cottage entrances to let us know they were just finishing cleaning up our room--an entire group had rented all of the cottages and had just left. We were happy to wait in the chairs overlooking Lake Erie just as the sun was starting to go down.
Chris checked us in and he suggested we visit Steak and Lube for dinner, especially if we liked wings. We decided to go and sit down by the lake in the Adirondack chairs and relax as the sun set. He even came down and brought us a menu in case we wanted to have pizza delivered to the cottages rather than go out to eat.
Our cottage had two double beds and a kitchenette and bathroom. It wasn't huge, but we didn't really need anything extravagant. It felt homey actually. We did notice a smell, but by the next day it was gone. We thought it might be coming off the lake since we could smell it briefly when we went outside and it certainly didn't ruin our stay there by any means.
The next morning we took our time getting ready to leave especially since Chris had generously allowed us to stay until 1 pm! We managed to get in a swim at the pool outside our door and enjoy the beautiful weather. If you don't mind a comfortable, no fuss and personal place to stay along Lake Erie, I definitely recommend Walk in the Water Cottages.
